Just to let the forum know that the Daily Mail reports today that Emirates is the first carrier to place an order for the A3XX - they have committed to five with an option on another five. The deal is worth an estimated £1.5 billion, with the new craft slated to enter service in 2005.
O FORGIVE ME!
I'M SO SORRY
I'm terribly sorry that I didn't have time to scan the forum when I was on earlier - I was enthusisatic to get the news on after the airliners.net poll on the subject!
Guess this site ISN'T for aviation ENTHUSISATS after all, just the usual netheads.....
